Is anybody having trouble with microbes in fuel? I have an issue with my RV-8 / IO 360. I have had the servo rebuilt. I pump all the fuel out of the tanks into a barrel and I plan to refill and add biobor JF to kill any remaining bugs. The main thing then is to be sure NO water enters the fuel. I would appreciate any comments or advice. Tom

Is this a hangar plane or on the ramp?

It's in a heated hangar but it was outside prior (with probably leaking fuel caps) and that's where the water came from.  On May 28, 2016 2:20 PM, "Carl Froehlich" <carl.froehlich(at)verizon.net (carl.froehlich(at)verizon.net)> wrote:[quote]--> RV8-List message posted by: "Carl Froehlich" <carl.froehlich(at)verizon.net (carl.froehlich(at)verizon.net)>
